Dental implants are the most advanced way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is a replacement root usually made of titanium which is implanted into the jaw in areas where a tooth or teeth have been lost.
This then acts as a root and a replacement tooth can then be fixed to it in a similar way as a crown. Implants are currently the closest solution you will find to natural teeth.
Implants can be used to:
- replace one tooth (implant / crown)
- replace multiple teeth (e.g. implant and 3 unit bridge)
- replace all teeth (Same day / teeth in a day)
- support removable dentures
Although it is impossible to beat or replicate a healthy natural tooth, it is often reported by patients that implants look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Most implants are placed under local anaesthesia similar to that used for fillings or extractions. They are inserted into the jawbone after incisions are made in the gums.
After a period of time the bone into which the implant is placed will attach to the surface of the implant. A small metal pin is then fitted onto the implant upon which a final restoration in the form of a crown or bridge or over-denture is fixed.
The time required to complete implant treatment is different for each patient and depends on the complexity of the treatment and their individual treatment plan.
Dental implants are very stable and effective. The implant itself is a titanium screw that is used to replace the root section of a missing tooth. Fitted directly to the jaw bone underneath the gum line, the implant is designed to hold an abutment onto which a new crown can be fitted.
The resulting combination of implant and crown gives a very strong and natural looking result. Dental implants can be used to replace individual teeth, or they can alternatively be used to support a bridge to replace multiple teeth.
Your dentist will initially examine your teeth to determine the best treatment for you. If dental implants are appropriate then we will explain the procedure and any implications involved with you, as well as answer any questions you would like to raise.
We will take X-rays and form a treatment plan for you. The procedure is spread over a few appointments. After the implant has been fitted to the bone in the jaw a period of time is required for the two to fuse securely together.
The abutment and crown are then fitted at a later appointment once the area has fully healed.
